EA SPORTS have revealed the three finalists for the 2021 Team of the Year 12th man, and for a limited time you can vote to try and help your favorite one make the cut.
Traditionally, FIFA has always put out an 11-man TOTY squad, along with another player that narrowly missed the vote called the “12th Man.”
That hasn’t changed this year, and along with the reveal of the Team of the Year Attacker ratings on January 22, EA also revealed the three 12th Man nominees for 2021 during a Twitch Rivals tournament on Tuesday, January 26.
FIFA 21 TOTY 12th man nominees
The three nominees for this year’s 12th Man are all players that could have very easily made the starting XI, but weren’t voted into the first team.
Tottenham’s Son Heung-Min is joined on the ballot by fellow Premier League star Thiago Alcantara, and rounding things out is the man a lot of us were convinced would be on TOTY, Lionel Messi.
Voting has already started and only goes until January 28, so don’t miss your chance to make your voice heard. If you’re not sure exactly how to vote, don’t worry, as we’ll go over all of the details down below.
How to vote
Unlike the TOTY votes, choosing your 12th Man is done in the form of “player picks” where you choose one player out of the three to add to your squad on loan, which counts as your vote.
- Log into FIFA 21.
- Start Ultimate Team up.
- Choose either Son, Thiago or Messi in the proceeding screen.
- Cast your vote, now enjoy your loaned player.
The winner will be announced in due course. In the meantime, for Twitch Prime Gaming members, check out our guide on how to redeem a FUT Pack reward – released for January.
